Change came to town,
One day three years ago,
He beat me up,
Tore me down,
Until my head were to explode.
But each time Change ripped out my heart,
The pulsing red thing
Just got bigger
And stronger,
Until Change could no longer hurt me,
But was instead a sullen visitor,
Stopping by to say hello.

This should be on Teen Ink Magazine and you should think about publishing it to even bigger places.
